A couple of quick questions.
- I had several sessions of grafting done years ago and I have some of the comman pitting where the transplants are on my hairline. I just had two scar revisions done (3/06 ane 6/06) and the HT’s have not really started growing yet. Will microdermabrasion (“Diamond Tome”) to the top inch or so of my hairline hurt my hairs I currently have and affect the growth of the the new HT’s that will soon be growing in? I know you might not know to much about this but I just have a hard time trusting DR’s anymore and would really like your opinion.
- I was reading in your blog about a guy who always had stretching to his scars (everywhere on his body). You recommended his scar be closed by “sub-fascial closure below occipitals muscle fascia”. Do you have an article about that and/or what is that in lay mens terms :o) Does this also include undermining the scar? Do you use undermining for scar revisions?
Thank you for doing all you do for all the men who got butchered by the bad Dr’s out there.
- I do not recommend dermabrasion, as it produces a different quality of skin that shines and is a different color (less pigment) then the original skin, often making things worse than the problem you are fixing.
- In reference to your questions on scar repairs, please see Techniques to Minimize Donor Area Scarring. These scar techniques will not work on everyone, particularly those who have a tendency to stretch their scar because of the way they heal the wound. I can not predict this group from the rest of the population.
